Times are rapidly changing in Aotearoa New Zealand. The events surrounding 15 March 2019 catapulted us to the forefront of both the world and social media. Our country has become bigger on the world stage and smaller here, as people reach out and demonstrate that we are better than this.
We’ve recently had Christchurch, Israel Folau, the End of Life Choice Bill and now, Sri Lanka put the Christian faith in the spotlight. How you respond to these issues and events has a significant impact on how people see our faith.
With this in mind, I want to highlight two events that are coming up soon. Movement Day NZ (Wellington) and The Gospel in the City (Palmerston North). Both of these events are about building the church. Movement Day NZ will have speakers from around the country sharing what God is doing amongst their city networks while The Gospel in the City explores doing church in the city, for the sake of a city.
